Rainforest is the 4th collection of poetry from Singaporean-Australian poet Eileen Chong, published by Pitt Street Poetry.
In her new book of 52 poems, Chong builds on her previously explored themes of belonging, trauma, and the joys of everyday living. Chong crafts her poems using imagery of water, forests, life and death. A masterful collection from an important contemporary Asian-Australian poet, Rainforest is a strong addition to Chong’s growing body of work.
Poet, editor, and critic Felicity Plunkett will launch the event and Chong will read from her new book. Book sales and signing at the end of the event.
